Tonight enjoy food from 9 restaurants and 30 wineries in an over the top lakefront setting lined with rows of white tents, palm trees at the 5th Annual Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic. I went last year and can vouch: it’s awesome. Celebrity chef meet and greets, food seminars, tastings, live music and more await ticket holders tonight and Saturday  5:30 to 9 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin. Tickets are not cheap, so be rich.

A horde of Zombies has taken over an Oviedo farm at the event called Outbreak on the Farm! Experience Zeds No Petting Zoo, the world’s first Zombie Zoo, walk a twisted burning labyrinth inside the Inferno Maze, take pics of the jack-o-lantern display, and shop from spooky vendors tonight and tomorrow night 7:30 to 11 at Good Neighbors Farm, 1101 Lloyds Lane, in Oviedo.

The 2nd Annual Thornton Park Halloween Block Party tonight will have a costume Contest with a $500 Grand Prize, live Music by The Legendary JC's, a "Dark Art" Market and sexy dancing by Ivy Les Vixens’ Burlesque Troupe. It happens tonight 9 to 2 all along the Thornton Park Business district.

And for the little baby ghosts the Pumpkins and Munchkinsevent will have games, bounce houses, a costume contest and a trick-or-treat Trail tonight in Shady Park, 6:30-8:30pm in Winter Park.

And as always, Orlando is wonderful!
